Xmas NYE Sydney Trip: Day 9 (1 Jan 2014) – Roadtrip to Central Coast

Rise & shine to a new year! We packed our stuff (picnic food, water, this and that) and left for our road trip to Central Coast.

It’s about 1.5 hours drive from Ryde, NSW and we arrived at The Entrance, NSW.

The place was crowded! Lots of people here for the sun and parking was so hard to find, but we managed to have a really good spot by the sea after a while of waiting.

The bf placed his car key in the boot to help me take a polaroid shot and promptly closed the boot cover. In the end he called NRMA roadside assistance and they arrived in 20 mins.

Xmas NYE Sydney Trip: Day 7 & 8 (30 & 31 Dec 2013)

On 30 Dec, we visited Auburn Home Mega Mall.

There are many furniture stores (Fantastic Furniture, Freedom, etc) and also electrical stores like The Good Guys.

We bought a standing fan from The Good Guys and the tom tom GPS there was cheaper than what the bf paid for 1 week before at some other store (Dick Smith I think?)

For dinner, we ordered Dominos online and went to pick up at the Gladesville store.

It’s Boxing Day! The day of shopping in Australia! But before that, we need to fuel our stomachs with a nice hearty breakfast.

I cooked some scrambled eggs (again, overcooked) and mushrooms, along with zx’s cured salmon, and opened a can of baked beans.

Xmas NYE Sydney Trip: Day 2 (25 Dec 2013)

20140117-0425

Nothing much is on today.

We bought some shaved ham, baby spinach and eggs yesterday at Woolworths for today’s breakfast – baked eggs.

Check out the recipe on taste.com.au!

Although there is a SMEG oven at Top Ryde, we didn’t have the essential baking tool – ramekin, and had to make do with a bread pan.

As the egg mixture was too shallow, it quickly overcooked and became more like an omelette. 😦

Arrived at T1 with mum on a Monday. Requested for an emergency row seat on QF82 but was flatly turned down by the SATS check-in staff. Disappointing.

Saw a big Trojan house at the departure hall of Changi International Airport to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
